Tis now the season for all the dragonflies to emerge, every morning I take a short walk around my village and capture the dragonflies as they perch in the obelisk position, according to google this is why they do this...

The obelisk posture is a handstand-like position that some dragonflies and damselflies assume to prevent overheating on sunny days. The abdomen is raised until its tip points at the sun, minimizing the surface area exposed to solar radiation
